    When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave - "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" - wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have... and you may find one day that you have less than you think").

    "Interesting, but not that moving"
    Overall

    I feel somewhat guilty saying anything negative about this book, because it came from the man's heart I am sure. However, this book was hiped up so much at our university, and I felt that it was not all that inspirational. I heard him speak on XM and couldn't wait to download the book from Audible, but the book wasn't near as moving as when Randy was just talking to an audience.
